The three-door 595 Turismo may be small, but it’s perfectly formed. It’s a supermini with the emphasis on ‘super’, with dazzling features that include 17-inch Gran Turismo alloy wheels, each fitted with black brake callipers. A sophisticated Circuit Grey paint scheme comes as standard, while a range of eye-catching colours are available as options, including Abarth Red, Modena Yellow and Podium Blue. The addition of dark-tinted windows helps to make this diminutive hot hatch really stand out from the crowd. The vehicle also includes electrically adjustable door mirrors, a heated rear window (with washer/wiper facility) and front fog lamps as standard.
A four-seat cabin is upholstered in a black leather trim, and the same material envelopes the vehicle’s multifunction steering wheel. The latter is telescopically adjustable, and the driver also benefits from a height-adjustable seat. Electric front windows and automatic dual-zone climate control ensure that weather conditions can be reacted to quickly and efficiently. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and 50/50 split-folding rear seats.
The Turismo is powered by a 1.4-litre Turbo T0Jet engine which produces 165bhp and as much as 230Nm of torque. The car is pacy too, accelerating from 0-62mph in approximately 7.3 seconds. It can also achieve a top speed of 135mph. Despite its undoubted vigour the 595 Turismo is still able to return as much as 47.1mpg and produce CO2 emissions as low as 139g/km.
The vehicle comes with a five-inch touchscreen display, which provides access to an AM/FM radio and DAB radio. Bluetooth connectivity and USB and AUX inputs are included too. The 595 Turismo features rear parking sensors, Electronic Stability Programme, Hill-hold Assist and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. A range of airbags are included as standard too.
